“Beginning with the Egyptians, the dove was as symbol of quiet innocence.
The Chinese felt the dove was a symbol of peace and long life.

To early Greeks and Romans, doves represented love and devotion, and care for a
family. The dove was the sacred animal of Aphrodite and Venus, the goddesses of
love. The dove also symbolized the peaceful soul for many cultures.

The Bible continued this symbolism, often referring to the dove as an animal
representing love, loyalty, fidelity and honesty. The dove is entrusted with the
olive branch when Noah hopes to find a new home for himself and his flock.
The dove often also represents the Holy Spirit.”

“to pack the Bud –oppose the Worm
Obtain its right of Dew —
Adjust the Heat — elude the Wind —
Escape the prowling Bee
Great Nature not to disappoint
Awaiting Her that Day —
To be a Flower, is profound
Responsibility —”

~ Emily Dickinson

The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life

The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too.
The people that love your simply for being you.
Those once-in-a-lifetime kind-of-people..
